Petrology Books

Philpotts treats petrology largely in terms of simple models that can be tested by quantitative analysis. Accordingly, description of field aspects and of rock associations is kept to a minimum, and there is no lengthy discussion of petrogenesis on the basis of magma-type, metamorphic rock-type, or tectonic environment.

Roth physical and chemical aspects of petrology are clearly and lucidly explained, and the text is punctuated by numerous, helpful illustrations. Thankfully, Philpotts does not sidestep the need to quantify petrologic, geophysical, and geochemical phenomena.

Indeed, one of the strong points about the book is that the mathematics necessary to understand the basic concepts is not only included, but derivations of important relationships are given in full.

Problem sets given at the end of each chapter reinforce and extend the concepts described in the text and provide many ready-made examination questions for the instructor , and are an integral part of the material covered.

Use of this text should convince all geology students of the need to formulate models in mathematical terms, and of the need to learn to Institute ofGeochemistry University of Vienna A Vienna, Austria Christian Koebert Book Reviews discussion of trace element systematics would have been useful. After all, interpretation of trace element data is critical for constraining the role of processes such as assimilation and magma mixing, as well as for inferring the characteristics of the source regions of magmas.

Similarly, I would like to have seen the chapter on isotope geochemistry placed earlier and greater use of isotopic data made in the section on assimilation. However, these are minor points and reflect my own prejudices.

An Introduction to the Science of Rocks

This book is designed as an introductory text for students who have completed undergraduate coursework in physics, chemistry and calculus. It could be used both for undergraduate and beginning-level graduate courses, and would serve as a useful supplementary text for introductory courses in other subjects e.

I shah certainly adopt it for my own classes, and it deserves serious consideration by other petrology instructors. It belongs on the shelves of all petrologists, geochemists, and geophysicists, indeed all of those interested in the solid earth. Planetary Mapping edited by R. Greeley and R. Cam- the problem of what projection to use in mapping.

For experienced planetologists, one of the most interesting chapters will probably be that on Planetary Nomenclature by M.

Strobe11 and the late H. Masursky former President of the I. Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature. This chapter should in fact be read by all advanced geology students to increase their understanding of how any sort of geologic mapping is or should be done.

An interesting implication of this chapter is that fundamentally sound geologic maps of the Moon-at least the near sidecould have been done in the 19th century by applying stratigraphic principles to telescopic observations.

For completeness, this review should make it clear what Planetary Mapping is not. It is not an atlas and makes no pretence of presenting encyclopedic coverage of the solar system or even the Moon. There is little on geophysical or geochemical mapping, a significant omission for the Moon.

There are no color plates or fold-out maps, and readers must supply their own stereoscopes for the few stereopairs presented. Susan M. DeBari Dr. DeBari Online NA Pages English This course is devoted to teaching identification, nomenclature, and processes of formation of igneous and metamorphic rocks found in the Earth's crust and upper mantle.

Topics covered includes: Metamorphic facies, Naming of metamorphic rocks, Graphical representation of metamorphic rocks, Metamorphic reactions and Metabasites, Calcareous rocks, Metamorphism and Tectonics. Petrology Lecture Notes Prof. Igneous Petrology, by Charles J.

In his preface to this volume, the author notes the lack of a text "in igeneous petrology that might bridge a gap between. Evaluated on these terms, the book has several deficiencies. First, there are inconsistencies in level of presentation.

For example, the brief presentation of phase equilibria presumes no prior exposure to phase diagrams whatever. Nevertheless, the author assumes that students using this text will have already learned about trace-element and isotope geochemistry, and has written his descriptive chapters Ch.

The implied background of the student seems unusual. Also, there are instances where very specific or controversial details from the literature are given without indicating that they may not be widely accepted or even citing the appropriate reference e.

Some problems in organization exist. For example, classification of rocks and rock series is split between Chapters 4 and 8. Individual chapters may be oddly organized, as well, with Ch.

This is one of the most important chapters in the book, and yet the various topics are presented in somewhat random sequence.Terms Used to Describe Mineral Shapes 5. Metamorphic petrology.
